A spokeswoman for the Spice Girls has denied newspaper reports that Melanie Brown is to marry her fiancé in little more than a week.

She said Mel B - better known as Scary Spice - had repeatedly denied reports she is about to marry since returning from the girls' US tour.

The spokeswoman said she was unable to comment further.

The Sun also reported that Scary had confirmed she is three months' pregnant by Jimmy Gulzar.

It said she will wear a top hat and white dress with leopard skin trimmings at the wedding - to be held in her home town of Leeds.

She will reportedly have three maids of honour - the fellow members of the UK's most successful female pop group, Melanie Chisholm, or Sporty Spice, Emma Bunton, Baby Spice, and Victoria Adams, known as Posh Spice.

Posh Spice is also pregnant and engaged, to England footballer David Beckham, but has yet to announce wedding plans.

"I've known for ages that I'm pregnant, but it's not going to split up the Spice Girls - nothing will," Brown told The Sun.

She began dating dance partner Mr Gulzar earlier this year.
